need help with amc 20 axle

well, I've got my jeep down to the frame now. Where I could start to build up. I've decided to start with the rear axle. Which is a amc model 20. Iwas planning to put a one peice Mosser in it; but my question? Has anybody have any problems with getting the flange and axles shaft out. I've tryed what the repair manuls say and the damn still won't move. Does anyone know away of removing this??? Thanks

Are you having trouble getting the flange off the shaft or the axle shaft out of the housing end? Without the large 3 arm puller, it's very hard, but can be done.

i was told once to put the puller on and get it nice and tight, then to take a torch and heat the flange. this expands it and makes it pull off the shaft easier. cant say if this works or not cause i havent tried it but it makes sense.

If you're replacing the axleshafts, don't worry about trying to remove the flange.

Pull the whole axle out and then drill/dremel/crack the bearing retainer and bearing off. That way you can get the brake backing plate.

You need a BIG honkin' puller in conjunction with a BFH (Big Friendly Hammer) to remove the flange anyway. Unless you thrive on frustration , don't fool with it.
